Helloooo, internet friends! Welcome! Can I interest you in some broccoli and carrots and garlic and cheese?! Also known as the fritters that were lovingly cooked, photographed, and scarfed down in just seconds? Oh, good!

What’s more surprising is that they were scarfed down by these little people that run around here, crying about how much they don’t like green vegetables. 1-0 for MOM! (I always win)

Is that a high-five I see?! Thank YOU! ????????????

Guys, I loooove broccoli. I think you know this, especially if you’ve been reading this blog for a while. I mean, if it’s not brussels sprouts (my fave of all), broccoli is the next green veg that sits on my dinner plate almost always. Steamed, with a bit of parmesan and lemon is all I need. But sometimes, I need more. I want more. I yearn for something a bit more flavor-loaded, crispy, lip-smacking, finger-licking good.

Enter broccoli, carrots, garlic, parm, and peanut oil.

I pinky promise you, though these are fried and not baked, we’re talking about a couple tablespoons, maybe 3, of peanut oil. No deep frying, and just two minutes of cooking on each side. I have baked them before, but usually included some type of grain – rice or quinoa to keep them completely in tact – however, this time around I wanted us to enjoy something thinner and crispier. 

FYI: Peanut Oil is one of the healthiest oils. It is naturally trans fat-free, cholesterol free, and low in saturated fats. Peanut oil is also great for healthier frying because it can be heated to a higher temperature than other oils which results in lower oil pick up in the food.

P.S. Serve with a side of plain yogurt ⬅ game-changer.
